deal of comment aud ulven rise to a
pleasurable feeling of expoutanoy' Everybody that onb moots is in favor
of the project, and generally the fear
is expressed that once aguin the
scheme may fail to como to fruition.
There js little reason to fear this
time that tho movement will be allowed to drop. Mr. McMillan has
found no difficulty in .netting signatures to his petition, and it is probable that a meeting; will be called
on Tuesday night of next week.
There is no reason for any delay.
Generally one finds that it cannot be
called any too soon. Mayor Nicholson is the last man to place any
obstacles'in tbe way of the formation of such nn institution, and
is quite willing to use his office
funds. How then can that best be
dono, and how should the meeting go
about it? Obviously the money will

and lugubrious agreement that

ngehinl task of giving the authorities of the I.eigne a good "roasting", nnd of stirring up Ui feeling
the Victoria players. The
League is not managed from the
Victoria YVM.U.A. rooms, and its
ullieers refuse to listen to every request emulating from thnt worthy
nstltut'ion. ihoreiore the League
and its oilicers are to bo assailed oa
every possible occasion by silly ft-
buse and knavish misrepresentation.
Now the remarks of the "Times"
writer are too lengthy to reproduce
in this column. But we will start
with his captious, and his opening
assertion which is that tbe .League
bus established two contrary precedents. Victoria, I say, has not
got tho worst of a soccer -deal. Sent-'
tie has not been givon '.mother date.
The League hus not established two
contrary precedents. The "Times"
is not erring through ignorance either, and one would naturally have
thought that its close proximity to
thi.- y.U.C.A, rooms, and the irfflu-
ences which uro thus brought to
bear upon it would have given it nt
least a bowing acquaintance with
thu truth. Vet, although its sport-
notions are clearly Inspired by
the V.iYTC.A. authorities, and its
articles dictated in the Y.M.C.A
committee rooms, the "Times" deals
in untruths and misrepresentations
though they were its solo stock
in trade.
As a matter of met the "Times
very conveniently ignores the Ilrst
cause of the whole difficulty. The
sporting editor of .that journal was
present at the meeting iu the Oriard
Motel at which the Jjeugue was form-
td. The question of Sunday playing
wus then discussed. and the delegates from each city explained the
position bf their respective cities and
clubs. There was general agreement and no protest. Then at the
eleventh hour, on the very day that
tho Loaguo opened, Victoria sent a
delegate to protest against Sunday playing. To give i&Ir, Lockley
his due, he was only too anxious to
live up to the agreement thnt Jie and
the other Victoria delegates had entered into at the Victoria mooting.
Ue is not "ho-loring" for Victoria
to quit the League, nor is Mr. Duncan, although neither gentlemah i;
apparently in favor with the clique
from which the Times derives its information.
'lhe question is, who outside of tho
Times' sporting editor, is raising all
the hubbub? In the Free Press of
Wednesday the announcement is made
that Nanaimo Lnited will play a
strong Victoria eleven—a stronger
eleven than Ladymnith defeated last
Saturday*—on Sunday afternoon.
Surely there is something mighty
strange here, and the "holler ng" of
the Times will take somo reconciling
with this gumo on Sunday. And
don't we all Know thut we here have
always been able to got a Victoria
eleven up here for a Sunday game?
And where were tho crowds who are
ho bitterly opposed to Sunday football on Saturday Oil ring the game
at tbe Itoyal Athlotic Park? Why,
...•re were more IWople from Nanaimo and Ladysm th than from
Victoria. Obviously the Times is
not voicing the feeling of tho Victoria players in its "hollering,"
The second point is Lho statement
that Scuttle has got another date.
' R. is announced," says the Times,
"that another dato will lie sot for
the l-adysmith-Seuttlo match at the
end of tlie season." Where has it
been announced'.1 I am an ollicer of
the League, and have been summoned to a meeting of the .l_x-cutivc; I
am manager and corresponding secretary of the local club—the club
concerned—and have received no no-
tillcaition of any kind regarding the
game. Nothing has been decided.
We want to keep Seattle in the
League if possible. We don't wish
to take the points unless we win
them, under the purtlculnr circumstances. That is the club's position,
Lut nothing has    been done in     tho
i the League.     More thnn that, unless     Victoria ran  force Vancouver,
Beattie, .Nnnaimo and Ladysmith to
lo as she wants, "the League is gong to lose ono team for sure." Holy
shades of sport!     And this appears
in the sporting    columns of a   reputable newspaper, and    at  the    very
time a   strong Victoria eleven     has
(Into booked     with Nanaimo    for
Sunday afternoon.     Of course     the
etatemont  only  represents  the pious
wisli of the writer.     Victoria Is not
tlidruwing   from the League, that
if    the game can    draw sufficient
tro'nage to givo travelling expenses to  Liie players.
There uro,     in spite of thc 'rimes,
mo true    sports in Victoria,     and
Rome of them ure attached to     ths
Y.M.C.A.     No official of the League
has any desire to' meddle with matters uf     private conscience'.     If     a
player     has    a  conscientious objection  to playing on Sundny, why he
is entilled     to Iio respected.     If
player lias no scruples about playing)
on Sunday hns ho, because of   that,
forfeited liis claim to respect?      Tlie
lilllcuit*   with  Victoria was  realized
and recognized at the inception     of
tbe League, and the delegates     nnd
ofllcials     did    what they considered

Uie riot tlmt occurred ut New Westminster during the progress     of     u
Incrosse     match  lietween   Vancouver
md the champions.     As a   result  ol
it ull tlie Vancouver club has refused to keep their 'engagement     with
the t'apilnls nt thc Kxhibltion.  Apparently    the Terminal Oity lacrosse
men    have severed    all connections
with New Westminster as tbeir Hug-
by oillciais diil witli Nanaimo.   There
is, of    course, no excuse for a   riot,
for violent demonstrations     against
visiting tennis.     All tlio same     ths
I'hurusuicul    attitude of these   Vancouvor sports would be amusing if it
were not so very aggravating.
At   Westminster,    ns at Nanaimo,
tlie trouble arose with the visitors.
According to the reports, gome player call (Iresn, fell to using dirty tactics and became involved In n scrap.
Of course this developed into a light
for all, and Paris, tho negro bruiser,
pulled a  gun.     lie has paid for It,
let me say.     .Now obviously, something ought to bo done to stop these
demonstrations which nre a  disgrace
to any   sporting    community;     hut
surely the adoption.of such a    high
and mighty    aloofness as Vancouver
is assuming is not going to cure it,
The real  trouble- seems to be that
none of    the     sporting associations
have licen properly managed,    ltuii.'h
or dirty play     in any game can     be
promptly stopped.        All It requires
is     for such association to approve
only lair and competent referees nnd
umpires, und see that they discharge
their duties, und to give them every
possible assistance In doing so.   All
olllcers and playors should be firmly
punished.        It seems that tlroen on
ono occasion, punched a   referee, yet
hu is still allowed to play the game.
No wonder there are demonstrations.
Once the game is cloan thore is little
danger    of trouble, from the spectators, although, of course, thore   are
always    a   few In every town     who
should never lie    allowed in a   playing Hold.     The trouble is that they
ennnot lie kopt out, and It Is up to
the-truo    sports who   love a  clean
game    and are proud nf their tend',
and cnrofiil of their sporting reptita-
lion, to keep things decent nnd     orderly,     U>t ur hope tho trouble will
be smoothed over nnd thnt such
demonstration may never again disgrace a  playing field in Urltish Columbia.

to have Vancouver play at the Pair
this week, we feel that in view ot the
affair last Saturday that we cannot

New Westminster again."— Archie
"I do not think that ths players
are responsible, for such rowdy 'conduct, but it has been going on for
years in the Royal City, and It is
not the first time that Vancouver
players have been assaulted and mob
bed In the Royal City, It is much
to be regretted. The Association
may hold a meeting for the purpose
of discussing the matter, but this Is
unlikely, as a meeting of ths association could hardly make amends
for Saturday's disturbance. This mob

the sooner thajiettor. If New Westminster cannot stop it, then Vancouver lriiist play In .another league." —

last night. "The public expects

The attack oil Mr. Macnaughton was
most cowardly, and he was- not protected In any manner. No, I don't
